After years of planning, construction and fundraising, the Children's Museum of Green Bay has finally opened the doors to its 15,000-square foot state-of-the-art facilities. Though the museum is designed for kids, grown-ups can find their imaginations sparked inside the new downtown space as well.
The Children's Museum was created in hopes of serving the needs and interests of children by providing exhibits and programs that stimulate curiosity and motivate learning. Traditional museums focus on research and permanent collections, whereas the Children's Museum emphasizes education and interactive exhibits. Inside you can find fun and educational exhibits including a climbing tree, lighthouse, fire truck, grocery store, human digestive track and even a miniature version of Lambeau Field.
Although the ribbon is cut, the project is still short of its $4.5 million fundraising goal and will rely on community support for the remainder of the funds. So if you're heading over to training camp with your family, show your support for children's education in Green Bay by checking this out. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two!
